Five men accused of plotting to take a fishing boat to Indonesia and eventually join extremists in Syria, are on their way back to Melbourne.

The group was arrested in Cairns last week, reportedly with the seven-metre vessel in tow.

Now they are seated inside a specially-chartered plane on their way to face Court, a flight which takes around three hours.
